on december 18, 2008 with outgoing president george w. bush. listen to what he said, also his body language. [video clip] >> you said, i am optimistic that we can change the tone in washington. >> that was a hopeful person saying that. >> are you less hopeful? >> we work together, there were some bipartisan accomplishments but the rhetoric got very tough. some people here in this town use the politics of personal destruction to advance their agenda. i do not want to sound self- serving, but i have not. i do not think a president should. i was hoping for better tone, and it did not happen. host: as you reflect on george w. bush at the end of his two terms. guest: president obama has said things better very similar. it is not just about washington. washington is a reflection of a broader culture. we live in a polarized culture. we live in a culture that celebrates -- notoriety is the quickest ticket to 15 minutes in the 24 hour news cycle. the other enormous difference that contributes to this -- i do not know how you reverse it. 50 years ago, you had two political parties that were both appe

[laughter] and i've written about corp. kor g.i.s. i wrote in a column once that corp. the dogs look like a breed of dogs that look like they have been assembled from oh parts of dogs. not the part that the breeds were sorry about giving up. [laughter] i'll admit there's never been a broadway show called cor g.i. i'm a second generation poet. my father was a grocer for most of his working life, but he had a restaurant for a few years, and he took advantage of that to write a menu at lunch every day. mostly about pie. not pi pie. pie. i had a lot of trouble with pi when i was in high school. math was my
, richard nixon, gerald ford, to be carter, ronald reagan, george bush and so on. more recently, george w. bush and barack obama. the tradition has been maintained. at some point, when a new president is elected, st. john's makes an effort to contact that and have them sign this very historic book, which is a very dear item to the church. it does not sit in the president's piu anymore but it is one of those great pieces of history long associated with this church from 1856 to the present. one of the little-known facts about presidential inaugurations is that it has been the custom in modern times to have a church service, a worship service of some kind before the president takes the oath of office. a lot of people feel that is something of a longstanding tradition, and it's not. it actually began with franklin roosevelt on march 4, 1943, when he wished to have a worship service take place before he took the zero art -- before he took the oath of office in the depths of the great depression. he contacted the church and organized a special service with his former headmaster who participated
to george w. bush has reuped his contract. according to politico -- >> there is this from our twitter -- the role of government in solving america's problems and we reflect on what dwithe eisenhower said 52 years ago in his farewell speech. ken is joining us from texas. good morning. caller: good morning. thanks very much for c-span. and what i wanted to say is that government has always been involved in the lives of citizens and has done lots of good things. when you take a look at what is happening, if you look to the south how successful mr. she vezz has been and now that he's passed away in cuba they have kept it quiet but his government is functioning without him. even though he didn't go through the swearing in ceremonies the vice president is stepping forward to help the country move forward t in the best way they can. it's very very heartening to see how the citizens of venn sale la have been successful in moving forward and putting their lives forward. they live in a house for two years and it's them whether they bought it or paid for it. it's maizing the role the government
: many people are saying that this president could use george w. bush on the issue of immigration because he is that as a key domestic agenda item on for his second term and he felt pretty good president bush help him on immigration with republicans? pick it'm sure he could is a question of whether he wants to play that role. there are plenty of other surrogates who could play this role, and the most important one is marco rubio, who was not only of hispanic origin, but also younger and can appeal to this whole dreamers movement, and he is right here in washington serving in congress and drafting legislation and working on a bipartisan basis. there is also a large number of democrats and republicans who, while we don't hear about it, are working behind the scenes, like lindsey graham and charles schumer, on putting some kind of legislation out there. certainly bush, he decided to step forward, could play a constructive role. it is not like he is going to let democrats just because he decided to put himself out there on the issue. it would only help in terms of bringing republicans on boar
to war in iraq, that is the original sin of the george w. bush era in america. but it does not mean that they cooked up all that fake and misleading intelligence all by themselves. some of it came from enemies of saddam and iraqi exiles and expats who shoved it to the u.s., knowing it was false, but hoping we would nevertheless fall for it because they wanted us to invade. that recent history of the u.s. and how we get into wars these days looms large. it looks large particularly on days like this when we see bombshell headlines like this one. our friend josh rogin at foreign policy tonight reporting that someone inside the obama administration says that he or she has seen a cable that if the information in that cable is true would be a very scary thing. the headline, as you can see there, "chemical weapons used in syria." chemical weapons used. nobody is known to have used chemical weapons in 25 years. we know syria has them. but have they used them in their civil war? because that really would change everything. but look back at that headline again. the part before the part that w

comments. >> remember he worked for george w. bush, and looking back on the situation as peter was just reporting on, saying today we face a debt bond and that the explosion will be deafening the way he put it is so predictable it is like flying into a cliff now it is right in front of you. he says will be met more painful than 2008, 2009. nothing we can really tell at this point. he said by the will, and the money to solve this. it was not like he was controlling cost at all. he said you look at your giving aid to the arsonist. that is how people continue to take it today even getting an accounting lift to banks allow them to write off some of these they have to make on the bases of mortgage debt, so we're still bailing out these banks. couple other things he said the "wall street journal" who only got 30 minutes with the treasury secretary which i thought was interesting. he was asked directly or the banks still too big to fail? he kind of stepped out of that question, but he said the country is in better shape today to fix one of these situations, to bail out one of these banks. but
